Šta danas radi Dragan Petrović?, evo šta nam je rekao - February, 2015 . "I am working on a new singl. Quartet sound. Little bit more Joe Sample and McCoy Tyner in my chops then usual. Anyways, in jazz we, jazz players, don't imitate style of other jazz players, but out of respect we use their voicings in the way we feel it work for us, while producing our own vibe. Always curious to find a way how to implement at least couple of bars of great Carlos Antonio Jobim in my composing. His uniqueness always has a great impact on me."
